Mart Relax Lounge Chair
for B&B Italia
The Mart Relax Lounge Chair for B&B Italia is a masterpiece resulting from extensive research by B&B Italia and Antonio Citterio into the process of thermoforming leather on a large scale. This innovative technique allows the thick leather to mimic the complex curves of the seat form, creating a luxurious and functional design. The Mart lounge chair is available in both textile and leather versions, allowing you to choose the perfect material that suits your style and preferences.
The chair has two base styles — a cruciform swivel base or a chic rectilinear cradle frame. The latter is a perfect contrast to the curvaceous form of the seat, giving the impression that it is floating above the floor. The Mart Relax Lounge Chair comes in different sizes depending on the adjustment of the rectilinear base and is available in a bright or black chromed finish, as well as painted finishes of black or bronze nickel.
The internal seat structure is fiberglass covered with cold-formed polyurethane, ensuring durability and comfort. For the fabric version, numerous textiles are available, while the thick leather versions are limited to six color choices. This chair caters to luxury consumers who appreciate the perfect combination of form and function. Order the Mart Relax Lounge Chair now and indulge in the ultimate relaxation experience.
Inspired by icons such as Eileen Gray, Charles and Ray Eames, and George Nelson, Italian designer Antonio Citterio has built an extremely successful career in the furniture industry. He’s known for his emphasis on craftsmanship and materiality, a combination that’s defined a longtime partnership with B&B Italia. Citterio has been responsible for designing all new collections by Maxalto since 1993. He ensures that each product, like his Dives sofa or Alcova canopy bed, clearly delineates its function and is comfortable and liveable as much as grand and luxurious.
Born in 1950 in the north Italian city of Meda, Antonio Citterio opened his first office at the age of 22. The architect and designer supposedly had decided on his career path by age 13.
Citterio went on to collaborate with Terry Dwan on architecture projects through the late 1990’s before forming a practice with Patricia Viel that’s today called Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. Their significant work includes the Technogym headquarters, Bulgari Hotels around the world, Qatar Airways lounges, the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Milan, and the B&B Italia Center for Research in Novedrate, Italy.
